Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it was given a C. In our short-term care category, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
